Recently images are used almost everywhere as an information transfer. As growing call for of protection, user authentication resides in earlier in records protection and performs an important position in shielding customers privacy. On-line transactions have become very usual place In this virtual era and numerous attacks are concerns. This paper discusses many potential attacks on visual secret sharing system and offering more safety than current method. In the proposed method, secret image is divided into many shares and distributed among the participants. The method used is recursive visual cryptography so many shares can be concealed in one share which gives better manageability. The main focus is on better image quality of reconstructed Image and protection from potential attacks on generated shares. At the decryption end super resolution is used to improve image quality and this paper achieved 92% accuracy and 95% SSIM The suggested method can be useful in many applications like online voting system, online banking and any other system where authentication is essential.
